Have you seen a big red pick-up truck that says Redings Mill Fire Protection District on the side? It’s pretty hard to miss, but someone thought they could get away with stealing it.
On Monday January 6th, 2020 at approximately 9am, firefighters found that Redings Mill Fire Station 5 had been broke into. The first obvious item missing was a 1994 Chevrolet Brush Truck. Other items were taken from a Fire Engine located in the facility as well. Newton County Sheriff’s Office was contacted upon the finding and began an investigation. We are asking the community to assist in finding the following equipment. Some of it is easily sold as common equipment, the other equipment relates to firefighting and may not appear to be a common everyday tool.
